CHAPEL HILL 2020


Chapel Hill sees changes to town signage

A set of ordinances that helps Chapel Hill keep its small town charm is getting major updates. As it stands, downtown Chapel Hill businesses face a complicated set of procedures for setting up signage. The regulations are mostly text-based and difficult to understand; business owners and even sign companies find themselves unaware of what they can and can’t do when designing exterior space.


Looking forward with the Chapel Hill 2020 plan

Achieving the goals put in place in the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive plan is easier said than done. The plan is not necessarily set to be completed by the year 2020, as its name suggests, but can be seen as a play on words for residents to have 20/20 vision looking forward, said Megan Wooley-Ousdahl, a community sustainability planner for the town of Chapel Hill.
